MARTIN COUNTY, Ind. - A southern-Indiana man is in jail and his son is dead after they had a dispute this weekend, state police said.
Indiana State Police (ISP) Sgt. Philip Hensley said just before 10 p.m. Sunday, Martin County dispatchers got a 911 call from John Bruce Tow, 60, of Shoals, Ind.
John Tow said his son, Jonathan Tow, 32, also of Shoals, was bleeding to death.
When ISP and emergency crews arrived at the home (the address of which hasn't been released by investigators), they said they found Jonathan lying outside the doorway of the trailer with a knife wound to his neck.
ISP said medical workers tried to save him, but Jonathan died.
John Tow was booked into the Martin County Jail on preliminary charges of criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon.
An autopsy was scheduled for Monday for Jonathan, but results have yet to be released.
More details will be released as ISP continues its investigation.
